  1. Well what we needed in 83 Fran was for old Eagle Eye "LEAVE THAT DRILL ALONE". (sung to Another brick in the wall) I remember 2 days before a show in Bayonne in 83 and Freddy changed 2/3rds of the drill and I think we still won by 1.5.
  2. Just curious but how many of the people mentioned in this topic attended George Park's Drum Major Camp?...just curious
  3. Are you referring to Scotty Poulson? If you are he was amazing!
  4. Fantastic!!! Welcome and wish you all the luck in the world...
  5. I'm one of those "couple of" who left. Moved from Sunrisers after 83 to Reading. Didn 't happen very often IIRC. No regrets though because it was the happiest time of my marching career.
  6. But did we have fun? You better believe it!!
  7. Keith..I'm surprised...you are not exactly a kid. How could you forget St. Joseph's of Batavia for New York. They were a real power house with a killer drum line. Top high drums in 68 VFWs. And who could forget Big Spender. Blew the house down.
  8. Would anyone object if I threw George Parks into the discussion? I know DCA but a real legend.
  9. Ken Norman....Kilties 68 blew me away
  10. Sorry for your loss Keith. I can relate. It wasn't my father but the person who got me into marching left us this past year. I'll always be grateful to Wayne - Fran Haring's brother in law- for getting me into a positive environment. If my Mother did today what she did back then, 1. I would have ended up in foster care, 2. She would have ended up in jail, 3. I would have ended up in jail. I'll always be grateful to Wayne. Marching changed my life. I am what I am today because I am a Crusader, a Sunriser and a Buccaneer. Sometimes a very simple question -your Father's Keith- can change a life. If my statements above are considered too personal I apologize. They are what they are.
  11. August 1967, Wayne Poulson -Fran's brother in law- asked me if I wanted to join a Drum Corps. My reaction was "what the hell is a Drum Corps". I was 12. Well I joined the Raiders of 88 in Highland Park New Jersey. My life was never the same after that. My 1st horn instructor was the legendary Tommie "Bucky" Swan. Need I say more?
  12. How The West Was Won. Do I have to mention the corps that played it? This was my WTF moment as in what have I got myself into?
  13. Looked and sounded pretty good..lol. Will we get retreat also?....I hope so.
  14. This is going to be tight....very very tight.
